The Shepherd of Hermas, Book 1

by Hermas

Published


The Shepherd of Hermas was a "bestseller" among early Christians (late Second Century), and was nearly designated a book of scripture. It's not clear whether it's supposed to be instructive fiction or an actual account of visions by Hermas, a freed slave turned shady businessman, worried by his sharp-tongued wife and troubled kids. The book provides much food for thought and much to disagree with.
